If you prefer or are unable to go to your Polling Station to vote you can apply for a proxy vote.

Appointing a proxy means that someone else will cast your vote for you.

Your appointed proxy will need to cast your vote at your designated polling station. Your proxy must be registered to vote and eligible to vote at the election.

Once appointed a proxy can apply for a postal proxy where your ballot papers are sent to them, however this must be set up by the postal vote deadline which is a week before the proxy deadline.
